Am I taking All the Things in My Life for Granted?
August 15, 2008
Have you ever asked yourself that question?
I don’t think there is a more important question you could ask yourself.
Taking everything for granted is robbing you of appreciation of wondrous events and the joy they bring to you.
Think of all the people, possessions, and events that happen daily in your life. Are they to be treated with disinterest, with a “So What” attitude?
What if, suddenly, it was all gone? Wouldn’t you then awaken to the ingratitude you had shown God and wish all would be put back in place?
Of course you would.
Our lives are a series of miracles. Even the things we consider to be bad are actually learning tools for future use.
Take a few minutes to reflect over your life. Are you taking things for granted? If you are, you are making a serious mistake. What’s happening is you are moving through life without the emotional highs and lows that contribute to joyous living.
Don’t Take Things For Granted.
